We are democratic in belief
and have always voted the dem
ocratic ticket; but it has been
well said that the real friend- of
a man is the one who can see and
tells him his faults. It is this
principle which causes us to say
that it is very strange that, not
withstanding the outlook for
democratic success next month
is promising indeed, that not one
thing has been done looking to
the calling of either precinct or
county conventions to nominate
delegates and tickets respectively
to be voted on at the approach
LARAZOLA' 3 CAMPAIGN.
The Republicán presa of New
Mexico, realizing the fact that
the Democratic nominee for del
egate, Hon.jO. A. Larazola, is
making such splendid progress
in his campaign as to seriously
alarm the most rabid Republican,
have converted their editorial
columns into sheets of vitupera
tion and abuse. This is poor ar
gument indeed, and such argu
ment as is not calculated to win
votes for Andrews at the ap
Advices received iu this county
from persons thoroughly ac
quainted with conditions, say
that Larazola will carry three
of the largest counties in the
Southeastern part of the Terri
tory, which have heretofore given
large Republican majority.
The election of a man of the
reputation and the record like
Andrews over a man like Lar
razóla a man who would reflect
credit iu the halls of congress
tj any district in the United
States would be a reflection up
on the intelligence of the people
of New Mexico: and would in
deed bo corroborative proof of
the often repeated Mtatotnent
jnade in congress during the
statehood question, that New
.Mexico is unfit for self govern
ment. We believe that the results of
the November election viz: the
election of Larazola, will prove
the complete refutation of this
. The following is an extract
from a letter by W. B. Childress
on joint statehood.
' To the Voters of the Territory of
At the ensuing November elec
tion you will be called upon to ac
cept or reject joint statehood with
the territory of Arizona as pro
posed toyou by the act of con
gress authorizing the people of
Arizona and New Mexico t
into the Union ns one tnte, pro
vided the people of the t wo terri-
iqne, voting separa t cly, shall so
elect. No more momentous ques
tion can ever be submitted to the
people of New Mexico for then
consideration and determination.
We propose to submit to you a
few plain facts and reasons why
you should vote in favor of joint
First: The territory of New
Mexico has asked for statehood
from congress from the time she
first became a territory up to the
present time without success
Bills for her admission have pass
ed one or the other houses of con
gress to be rejected by the other
It is a fact known to all well in
formed persons, that when a bil
for the separate admission of
New Mexico has passed one
house, it was well known by
many of the members who voted
for it that it would not pass the
other. It is undeniable that the
people of the great states of the
Union, with out regard to party,
are unwilling to admit any more
new siutes, wnaiever tne area
may be, having a small population
It is also well known that the
conditions are such in New Mex
ico and Arizona that the suprem-
est optimist can never hope for
any but a comparatively small
population, sparsely settled over
its plains, in its canons and along
its streams. President Roose
velt has frankly told us that if
we reject this offer we must ex
pect years to pass before we
have another. As our friend he
has aaked us to accept it. Not
only is this true, but there was
n't a singledemocratic vote cast in
either house of congress against
this bill when it was passed, and
practically both great political
parties in the United States
stand for this measure. Shall
we reject it? Every considera
tion for our present and future
welfare impels us to say "No."
If the people of Arizona see tit
to reject it, however much we
may regret it, is no reason why
New Mexico should do so. A de
cided vote for it by New Mexico
will undoubtedly hasten the day
when we get statehood, either
joint or single.
What benefits will be derived
from statehood under this act?
We receive from the United
States lands as follows:
16,738,183 acres - Four sections
in each township in Arizona and
New Mexico; computed from the
area of each territory, for pub
lic school purposes.
192,000 acres for university
192,000 acres for legislative,
executive and judicial buildings.
200,000 acres for support of in
200,000 acre for penitentia
ries. 200,000 acres for deaf, dumb
and blind asylum.
100,000 acres for minéis' hos
pital. 200,000 acres for normal schools
200,000 acres for chnritable,
penal and reformatory,
300,000 acres for Agricultural
and Mechanical colloae.
200,000 acres for School
200,000 acros for military
gether with all the saline lands,
543,080 acres of this' grant, were
for educational purposes. Thus
it will be seen that the state of
Arizona will receive with the sa
line lands, more than 19,000,000
acres of land, and 5 per cent of
all sales of public lands not do
nated to it; and, last but not
least, $5,000,000 in cash from the
treasury of the United States;
all to be held in sacred trust for
the education of the children of
the present and future genera
tions'in the state. An endow
ment which has been estimated
at $30,000,000. In addition con
gress pledges itself to continue
the annual cash appropriations
now made to the agricultural
colleges in Arizona and New-Mexico.
Can we afford to reject this
munificent endowment upon con
siderations of partisan or disap
pointed ambition or prejudice?
We say no
